More specifically, what do need to do? Do you need a compiler? Google - linux fortran - many links.

Hi saray!

gfortran is the GNU Fortran compiler you are looking for ...
In Debian based systems, you can Installed it by using
#apt-get install gfortran
I'm not sure about openSUSE but I think you can use APT with this distro also, and this command may work.
In case the above command doesn't work, use the YaST installation environment. The one used by openSUSE to install software... See more in YaST documentation.

After you have Installed gfortran you can write a Fortran program using your favourite Text Editor, and compile it with gfortran

Regards!
Vas

Thanks for the very useful reply on gfortran. I have it installed and I have compiled some codes with it.

Another question related to the first one is that, the commands of fortran programming are just the same as what we have in windows?

Yes. Fortran's syntax depends only on specific Fortran standard, not operating system.
